03 Dec Locals complete their “Walking Home for Christmas” event around an Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserve
Staff, veterans and volunteers from the Help for Heroes Recovery Centre in Colchester have taken a walk on the wild side! They have just completed their “Walking Home for Christmas” event around an Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserve.
They were joined by Santa, Hero Bear, Boris the Badger and local MP Will Quince for the two hour walk around Fingringhoe Wick.
Help for Heroes have this year joined forces with another military charity, Walking With The Wounded, on their annual walking challenge to support even more veterans.
The campaign calls on communities to put their best foot forward to raise much-needed cash to help veterans and their families. Simply by going for a walk.
Will Quince, who joined the walk, said: “Not only is Help for Heroes a fantastic charity that works across the UK but we’re so lucky to have a Recovery Centre in Colchester. It was a great opportunity to talk with staff and veterans from Chavasse VC House but also to thank the volunteers for the amazing fundraising that they do”.
